We had the pleasure of having Lee & Robin (Millstone Mercantile)
here for dinner yesterday ~
we always laugh a lot and enjoy their company...
...it was a nice time to just sit and relax a bit and enjoy each other's company.
Next year, I will be able to enjoy the company of my sister Louisea and her hubby Tom
at holiday time because they will be moving right down the road from us here!!!
I cannot wait!
today cookies will be baked, and last-minute gifts will be finished.
I do have to head out to market to pick up a few stocking stuffers too ~
(((can't forget Iggy's stocking and all of our farm-friends )))
hoping your day is Merry & Bright!
